Things you should know about the Warsaw metro.
The metro is a major and heavy used commuter system currently extending from Northern Warsaw (Mlocny) to Southern Warsaw (Kabaty) . A basic second East – West line has been built and as of this writing it is being expanded. The lines cross and you can transfer between the two at the Swietokryszka station.
You can get maps of the metro at the various city tourist information stands. Also, on each station there are maps. And on each train. You can also get a copy now that you can print by going to Map Metro Warsaw
In the page below there are links to videos and descriptions of each of the metro stations on the line.
Riding the metro is safe and convenient. Having said that, do avoid the weekday hours 0800 – 0900 and 1600 – 1700 if you want to avoid the cars filled to crush capacity.
During the week trains run about every 3 minutes. On weekends it is more like 6 minutes.
All stations are well lighted and open but for elevator entrances at some which are at the end of narrow passages at one end of the station.
And to emphasize a point, elevator access is available at all stations.
There is a yellow emergency phone at the end of each station platform.
WC facilities are available at each station. They are paid services. Zloty are required. They are clean and each has an attendant available at all times.
